Content

Tip: The product now known as IBM Spectrum Protect™ was named IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager in releases earlier than Version 7.1.3. To learn more about the rebranding transition, see technote 1963634. 


* NDMP support is available only on IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition and IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager Extended Edition.

NDMP Support in IBM Spectrum Protect Version 8.1


Hardware
Operation System IBM Spectrum Protect supports NDMP on all the operating systems that is supported by the IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition Server. See IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition V8.1 server supported operating systems. Go to http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21243309
Software Installed and Configured One of the following software products is a prerequisite for performing NDMP backup/restore operations:
  • A IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition V8.1 or newer server
  • A IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition V8.1 or newer backup-archive client on Windows or AIX (64 bit) can be used for initiating volume-level backup and restore operations. To use a Web client to display files from a volume backup and select individual files to be restored, you must have a Windows Web client and a Web browser which can run on any platform.
